During the New York
Yankees-Toronto Blue Jays game on Thursday, a huge banner promoting ex-President Donald Trump
lies was unfurled.
However, the sign, which falsely declared that “Trump Won” and urged people
to “Save America,” did not last long.
security quickly confiscated the banner and escorted those responsible for its display away.
The incident was captured on video from several perspectives:
A couple of Yankee Stadium fans just unveiled a massive banner that reads “Trump Won Save America.” It appeared that the entire crowd was booing until security confiscated the banner, which resulted in a loud cheer. pic.twitter.com/m56kjgkJ9W — Max Goodman (@MaxTGoodman) May 28, 2021
There was a lot of booing here after some jabronis unfurled a “TRUMP WON” banner off the second deck. (He didn't.) pic.twitter.com/RzTuTB323i — Lindsey Adler (@lindseyadler) May 28, 2021

Some fans in the stadium booed and flipped the finger at the banner:
In 2018, a banner reading "Trump 2020" was hung there.
The Blue Jays won the first game of Thursday's doubleheader 2-0, while the Yankees won game two 5-0.
